Microsoft held its major launch event yesterday with several new devices announced.
The first up is the launch of the Surface Pro 4. The surface line has been a big success for Microsoft and they are generally regarded as the best hybrids on the market.
The Surface Pro 4 looks pretty much the same as last year but it’s thinner at 8.4 mm and sports a larger 12.3-inch display.
The new display uses something Microsoft called PixelSense technology with the thinnest optical stack on a screen that pushes over 5 million pixels with over 267 ppi. It also supports 1,024 levels of pressure with the new pen (which now sports an eraser) that attaches magnetically to the new Surface. The Surface itself has up to 16GB of RAM and up to an impressive 1TB of storage. A sixth-generation Core Intel processor (up to a Core i7) runs the entire thing. The new CPU helps make the Pro 4 30% faster than last year’s model.
The accessories have also been revamped with the Touch Cover being thinner, lighter and having a trackpad that is 40% larger. The keys also have more space between them and better travel, giving it more of a proper keyboard feel.
A new dock is also available with USB 3.0 ports, two 4K DisplayPorts and Ethernet and like the new Type Cover will work with the Surface Pro 3.
No word on UK pricing but it will start at $899 and should be released on October 26th
